Inside (and) Out: Meditation and Yoga for Everyone
June 8–11, 2017
Our unique sensibilities are sustained by practices that include our whole being. The encouragement in this 4-day retreat is to find your way through the simple and spacious practices of meditation and yoga. You will design new playful and personal rituals you can carry into your life. Periods of silence will nourish intimacy. We will cultivate community by sharing our Way-Seeking Mind stories; the tender under-world of our being. We will practice alone and together, inside and out, in the fields, forests and groves of this sacred land.
This retreat is designed for everyone. If you have conditions that require special consideration please contact SMC.
9-12: yoga/sitting, discussion
4-6: sharing or sitting or four postures or restorative yoga (also walking meditation outside)
After dinner: sitting or talking circle
Morning: outside four postures
